Bob Casey (D-PA) on Tuesday - but his margin of victory wasn't exactly awe-inspiring.

The Pennsylvania GOP Senate primary pits Rep. Lou Barletta against State Rep. Jim Christiana.

That's not exactly a huge margin for Barletta, a longtime congressman who had the explicit endorsement of the President - and who spent almost $2 million on the race to just $250,000 for Christiana.

President Donald Trump recorded a robocall for Rep. Barletta during the state's Republican primary, urging voters to back the former Hazelton mayor. These results are unlikely to calm their nerves.

One vote in the Senate can make the difference, and the president is committed to helping me win this race.

To the west, Democrats are watching a House primary in Nebraska, where former Rep. Brad Ashford - a conservative "Blue Dog" who lost to Republican Rep. Don Bacon in 2016 - must hold off progressive Kara Eastman before he gets a rematch with Bacon.

Barletta accused Casey of moving too "far left", and not being in line with the will of Pennsylvanians who support Trump's agenda. He has won five statewide elections, served as state treasurer and auditor general, and won his 2012 Senate election by more than 9 percentage points.

In the new 1st District, Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick - one of the most endangered Republicans in this year's midterm elections - survived a primary challenge and is now set to face Democrat Scott Wallace, a multimillionaire who has spent $2.5 million of his own money on the race.
